Garrisons: The WoW version of player housing

This is one of the feature requested since forever. I guess every time when there is an interview or a big event people ask about Houses.

Well, the Warlords of Draenor expansion if the expansion that will bring this feature to World of Warcraft. You can consider this to be a newer version of farms as well, but a lot of things were added.

You can pick the place where you want to build your Garrison. Whatever Draenor area you like the most, you just pick the spot. You can also move the whole thing later on if you like.

Garrison UI:

All the building will have three update levels and each building will give you or your followers all kind of bonuses. You can build farms, stables, armories, workshops and more.

Followers UI:

The followers are found in the Inn. You can rename them, gear them up, they can have specializations like DPS, Tanking or Healing. They are used to do your dirty work and you can send them in missions. They can loot dungeons, fulfill missions, and craft items, even if you’re offline.

Followers have a character level, an item level, and traits that affect missions and tasks. For example, if they have the Mining trait, you’ll be able to assign them to a Mine in your Garrison to gather resources for you. There are common, uncommon, rare, and epic followers, and their rarity affects the number of traits they can have.

From levels 90–100, followers will gain character levels, which have a significant impact on their abilities and mission success chance. They’ll also increase their item level as you equip them with follower-specific gear; once they’ve reached level 100, equipment will have a larger role to play in their overall effectiveness.

Missions UI:

Each mission will give you different rewards and you can select a specific team to complete it.

I’m sure more and more details are going to be available later on about the Garrisons. Stick around and read our live coverage article.
